About me

My pronouns are she/her. I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Appearance Research (CAR) at UWE, Bristol. I obtained a bachelor's degree in Sports Science with Management (BSc Hons, First Class) and a master's degree in Psychology (MRes, Distinction) from Loughborough University, and a PhD in Sport & Exercise Psychology from Liverpool John Moores University. 

My research interests include body image, eating disorders and disordered eating, and the intersection between body image and movement. In my current role, I am involved in developing and evaluating body image and sports-based interventions for girls and coaches. Our goal is to create safe, inclusive, accepting, and body positive sporting environments for girls around the world. 

I believe in the importance of collaboration and work actively with researchers in Australia, Canada, Finland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Aside from my current role, I am also involved in the Crisis and Response (CaRE) Interest Group at Liverpool John Moores University, where I have conducted multiple systematic reviews on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health and well-being outcomes. 

Area of expertise

Body image, sport & exercise psychology, eating disorders & disordered eating, intervention development.
